Event/ Production: The Wheel
Location: Bovingdon Studios
Services: Technical Management, Operations Management
Client: Hungry Bear
When brand new Saturday night quiz show The Wheel was looking for a studio that would not only allow plenty of space due to social distancing but also required substantial height clearance, due to the camera shots that are required, Bovingdon Studios was a great solution. Given CSG Events’ extensive knowledge and experience they were the natural choice to deliver technical and operational management to production company Hungry Bear.
As it was a new client for the studio and it being a relatively new location there were several key suppliers who were new to the site. It was also a very different filming experience giving the ongoing situation with Covid-19. CSG Events was able to support them and give advice based on the previous shows it had been involved in with the team knew exactly what worked and what didn’t.
Having CSG Events as the Principal Contractor onsite continued to add structure and organisation to the construction phase planning for the show. This included looking after accreditation, construction phase plans, construction phase Risk Assessments, in-depth review of contractors RAMS and producing a load-in schedule which allowed Hungry Bear to focus on what was going on in front of the camera. They were extremely appreciative of the support that they received and are looking forward to returning to Bovingdon to film the second series in 2021.
